Teenage Dream: THE BIG REVEAL

2/20/2012 10:31:00 PM

I love big reveals! It's the moment where my moodboards and ideas translate into reality and I have the photos to show. hahaha..  Welcome to the reveal of Teenage Dream! This might actually be MY Teenage Dream Bedroom. At least I've got to live it through this girl's space. 

These are the moodboards. Neutral walls with burst of colors everywhere.

Welcome to my room! hahaha.. Fine, welcome to the Teenage Dream. :)

Everything is new except for the bed. We left the door as is since they are planning to replace all doors in their house, but it would be ideal to have it in white.

Portraits above the bed. To keep it young, they had a pop art looking portrait. I chose pink and purple for that to compliment the teal tables.

New lights -the very girly white chandelier, and the yellow lamps. I actually can't find any yellow lamps, so I, together with the BF, spray painted these lamps from SM dept store. I searched for the cheapest lamp with great silhouette.

I found these cute floral fabric and had them as accent pillows.

 Black drawer pulls to match the bed.

The main colors of the room is teal with yellow and pink accents. I wanted an unconventional tv stand so I had it painted in yellow.

They requested for a sofa bed to sleep more people if needed. Instead of using white (like in the moodboard), I ended up using black to pull from the bed color.

I love the curtains! The perfect dark teal with a very cute pattern. Also had that storage cabinet made.

I had two sets of curtains made. The teal one, and the other is in this hot pink fabric (throw pillow). When they switched to the pink curtains, the teal pattern will then be used for the throw pillow.

The gallery wall. I love it when client requested for one since its one of favorite wall treatment. Haha..

To break things up a bit, I made this custom art of the girl's name.

We used flat molding to frame the cabinet, and had a smaller one frame the doors.

I haven't found the perfect chair for now, so she's temporarily using a stool they had.

Can't find a great white mirror (most of them are plain and doesn't have frame details) so I had one painted white. You don't have to be limited to what's available out there, paint goes a long way!

My favorite shot. 

I'm super happy with how this room turned out. Aside from the fact that these colors are making me happy, I'm thrilled with the fact that it's a very close match with the moodboard I made. I'm lucky I found that curtain fabric!

There'll be a bathroom reveal as well. It's the complete opposite of this, clean white, and a bit mature, since bathroom tiles should be more timeless. But that's for another post. Until then, lets all live our teenage dream through this bedroom. Haha.. I'm sure I'm just speaking for myself.

  13. id like to congratulate you for the great job there!. id like to comment on something it could have been better if you add more fluffy pillows with interesting patterns that can go well with the curtain and on the comforter. the bed itself is your focal point. but overall you did a very nice job. keep it up! :)
